I bought a fresh turkey from your Winter Park, Fl store last year and it was great. We will be in NYC this year and I want to order a fresh turkey from the Tribeca store. My husband said he saw a price of $5.99 per pound on the store flyer- I know that it is NYC but could this be the correct price? I am used to paying half that for Bell and Evans turkeys!!!

Have enjoyed organic turkey for the past 11 years. However, the last two years I have not found the taste as distinctive, perhaps it is my aging taste buds. As I suffer from an autoimmune disorder rejecting organs. I am concerned about GMO feed. I had hoped that organic would also mean NO GMO corn fed with pesticide within corn as in all GMO which is 80% of crops grown, so I have read. Turkeys purchased last several years from Whole Foods, prior to that a small health food store bought out by Whole Foods. Thanks for the venue.

We purchased a turkey at the store today (Nov. 20) and would prefer not to freeze the turkey at all. Will it be OK to refrigerate until Thanksgiving day? Thanks, John

I see your post that you work with multiple turkey farmers and ranchers around the country. My local WF store told me that you have a "humane kill" clause in your contracts with all meat suppliers. Is this true for the turkey farmers too?

My family loved the Turkey last year. It was so fresh and tastie But most of all I trust Whole foods with my food needs. I'm gluten free and need to make sure I don't get sick. I can count on Whole foods!!

What size do your turkeys go up to>

Typically we carry birds that can be up to 30 lbs.....sometimes even a little bit bigger. However the selection and price will vary from store to store. The best thing to do is check in with the meat counter at your local store. Also consider pre-ordering your bird to ensure you get the size you need.

I switched our family over to all organic foods about a year ago, this is our first thanksgiving living organic and I don't know what to do about the turkey. I will need a bird that is at least 24 lbs. Do organic turkeys get that big, and around how much do they cost? Thank you!

We have bought our turkey from you for the last 4 years. Just perfect every time. And because we are a family of two, you have always provided us with a small 8-10 lb Diestel or Mary's...just perfect! Easy to cook, tender. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving. Rose and Fran

It seems like you have EVERYTHING listed here except for an icon I can click to order a TG turkey from my store. And I have been all over your site in the most logical places to make this simple order, and yet.... what do you suggest? (I recall going thru this last year about this time.) I love your turkeys. So do my guests, but this part is so freaking hard. Thank You for any assistance you can provide!

@Karen Sometimes websites can be hard to traverse. Go to the link below. You'll have to select the store where you'd like to pick up your bird. Once you select your store, you'll be given shopping options from which to select. You will be able to find your turkey options under the "Thanksgiving" selection. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/shop/

@Abigail I encourage you to reach out to the Holiday Table at your store to make a change to your pick-up time. The link below will help identify the contact information for you store. Give them a call and ask for the Holiday Table. However, all our holiday orders should be available for pick up through Thanksgiving day. However, if you are planning on picking up your turkey on Thanksgiving, make sure you double check what your store's hours will be for that day. www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores
